THE VELVET CACTUS

I have found a great new venue to showcase my art.   It also happens to be a wonderful restaurant.   The Velvet Cactus in Lakeview is among one of my favorite new hotspots.   A great patio area with all kinds of funky goodness, and hispanic overtones, with wonderful food, and eclectic mixed crowd.  From families to locals alike, this place satisfies all my needs.   you will find them here…. http://www.thevelvetcactus.com/

I would like to tell you that I have been quite successful with my day of the dead art here…   take some time out of your busy schedule and get yourself a margarita… the happy hour here?  makes everyone happy.  Watermelon mint?  YUM…

NEXT UP?  I will be at the Bayou St John Boat Parade with the Krewe Of Kolossos, and am being Crowned!   I am so excited!   A bonus?  is the fact that “Katrina Brees”, has gotten the parade community?  into going green, with her recent merge with the Krewe Of Boo, who will be returning this October to the streets of New Orleans, and throwing only GREEN throws.  no plastic beads!

HERE’S to The Krewe Of Kolossus, and the Bayou St John fourth of july boat parade!    expect only botanical throws, and if you get out and enjoy?  please be aware of the bayou, the animals, and make sure you leave no trash behind.  KEEP IT GREEN!

cheers!
